I have a 4 year old boxer who just recently had a similar second episode. The first time I was living in an apartment so I thought maybe he got into something bad outside but now I am in a single family rental with a fenced in back yard and this just happened again. I let him out to go to the bathroom and about an hour later I hear him licking profusely to the point where both front paws are soaked. He then vomits multiple times and then starts licking the floor for every morsel of dirt or lint or whatever he can find. It's so strange. I can also feel that his body temperature is slightly elevated during this time. I just don't know what to make of it. He's a purebred, up to date on shots, we don't change his food, he's not a grass eater...... At a loss!!View Thread
